General practice respiratory clinics

Page last updated: 1pm, 19 September 2022

General practice respiratory clinics (GPRCs) provide patients with access to assessment for respiratory symptoms, testing and treatment close to where they live.

GPRCs now operate at many locations across Melbourne as part of partnerships between primary health networks and the Victorian and Australian Governments.

 Find your nearest GPRC.

Who can access GPRCs?

GPRCs support adults, children, infants and babies with respiratory symptoms to access a comprehensive respiratory assessment and receive immediate support in management of their illness. GPRCs are for people with:

  • confirmed COVID-19 (book ahead)
  • COVID-19, influenza and cold symptoms such as a cough, runny nose, sore throat or fever
  • mild shortness of breath*.

*If you have severe trouble breathing, blueness around the mouth, chest pains, or pain in your arms or jaw, call triple zero (000) for urgent help.

If you can’t see your regular GP, a GPRC can provide the face-to-face attention you need. Services are available to people with or without a Medicare card, at no cost to the patient. Some clinics will be open after hours and on weekends (see below for opening hours).
